Baby’s first haircut! The Duggar family is known for DIY-ing a lot of things in order to save money, and that’s something they’ve instilled in their children — and their adult children are continuing the tradition. Jill Duggar took to her family’s YouTube channel to share two cute new videos documenting her youngest son Samuel Dillard‘s first haircut.

“Sam-Sam is just about to get his first haircut, yay!” Jill said in the clip, and her husband Derick Dillard could be heard saying, “Yay, Sam,” in the background.

Since Sam is still growing in his hair in some places, his mama just needed to trim up the front of his hair and the back, where his hair was so long that it was starting to curl up.

Jill definitely looked like she had some experience with cutting a baby’s hair, and she used hair clippers instead of scissors for baby’s first cut. “Tickle, tickle, tickle,” Jill said in her baby voice to try to distract Sam as she ran the clippers over the back of his head. “Yay, oh, his little curls — mommy’s gonna cry!”

Sam’s big brother Israel watched from the back of the kitchen, and when he heard his mommy say that she was sad and going to cry, the sweet little boy walked up to her and gave her a hug. “I’m sorry mommy,” Israel said. “She’s okay,” Israel’s dad could be heard from behind the camera, assuring Israel.

But for the most part, barely any tears were shed from mommy and baby, and it looked like the entire experience was a success — and baby Sam looked so cute with his fresh new ‘do.

Ever since Jill and her husband Derick stopped participating in their family’s hit reality TV series Counting On after his homophobic tweet scandal, they’ve been trying to share regular updates on their lives with fans on social media. But fans are still missing them on the show, and many of them hope that at least Jill will reconsider rejoining the cast at some point in the future.
